About UD Study Abroad
In 1923, UD founded what is considered the first study abroad program by a U.S. institution. Today, over 30% of UD undergrads study abroad at least once, and some as early as freshman year!
Students can choose from semester-long programs in Fall and Spring, and shorter programs during Winter and Summer session, most of which are led by UD faculty. While abroad, students take a full load of Academic credits, may engage in internships or community service, and sharpen language and intercultural skills.
